Installation of new electric cooktop

I have a older (13 yr old) whirlpool electic cooktop (RC8920XRH9) that I am looking to replace with a new RC 8700 or a JennAir (JED8230ADB). Will I have to modify the venting system for either of these new units?

If you're talking about a downdraft style cooktop, you will just need to measure the discharge vent diameter and shape and match that up. Not all are the same shape but most are 6" diameter

Just installed an electric cooktop and the Hot Surface indicator light has been on since installation. How do we fix this?


Sounds like a thermal switch which controls the hot surface light is stuck closed.

If this is a new unit, I'd return it. If not, I would check the switche(s) for the hot surface light -- when the unit is cold, unplug one wire going to the thermal switch and check it for electrical continuity. If you get current from a multi-meter through the switch, replace it -- it's not opening when it cools down.

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL ELECTRIC COOKTOP WITH A LARGE CRACK CAN I REPLACE JUST THE SURFACE IF SO WHERE CAN I GET ONE?


The glass can be replaced. Go to any appliance parts website and look up the model number for your cooktop. They should have a parts directory and then search for your cooktop glass. I warn you though - the glass is almost as expensive as a new unit!!
